Wonder by R.J. Palacio- juvenile fiction

Started reading this a month ago. It’s number 6 on the NY Times best-seller list for children’s chapter books. The main character is a boy born with severe facial deformities. He has just started attending school after having been homeschooled since birth. The first half of the novel is told from his point of view. Then it switches to his older sister’s viewpoint. So far I like it although it seems like his parents baby him a lot for a 10 year-old. However, I understand they want to protect him from the evils of the world and the hard life he has ahead of him. Will let you know how the second half holds up.
